Event description

Description

Collage! The surrealists and the poets loved the artform for its adsurdity and non-conforming principles. But in decades since it has fallen from radical artistic tool to a cute scrapbooking pastime. In this workshop you, the student, will learn how to make collages that honor the original form. The goal is for you to leave the class armed with the tools and understanding to keep exploring this rich medium. This workshop is taught by Thomas Young and Michael Tunk, two seasoned collage artists who share a studio here at Phoenix, and exhibit together throughout the Bay Area.

We'll have a teaching/demonstration period in the beginning, where you will learn different cutting and gluing techniques, and then you'll be turned loose to create your own artwork! Using vintage postcards as a starting point, you'll be introduced to techniques in perspective, scale, and color matching, which will help you to make a well-constructed collage. At the end of the class you'll walk away with the pieces that you make, plus a personal collage-making toolkit so you can continue your exploration of the medium. Workshop fee includes materials. Please, no attendees younger than the age of 16. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, feel free to bring your own as well.
